Hard Money Talks

Hard Money Talks, a new podcast that explores the difficult money conversations that most people don't want to talk about. In Hard Money Talks we tackle financial topics such as financial abuse, spending addictions, financial infidelity, hidden addictions like sex and gambling, marriage issues, narcissistic divorce, bankruptcy, poverty mentalities and so much more! Lauren Greutman combines her experience as a drug and alcohol counselor with her current financial counseling work to help people with the underlying psychological issues about WHY these issues are occurring in the first place. "We need to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they're falling in." = Desmond Tutu So - that is what we are doing with this show. Why are Americans failing with their money and their budgets? Let's go upstream and find out why they are falling in and help! Welcome to the Hard Money Talks Show!
